You all don't care, but I do, and am very much interested in this type of stuff.. But the Vikings will be getting a new uniform design this year. Not throwback but an every-game uni. They are releasing hints/clues weekly until the full uniform reveal which will happen during their draft party on April 25th. So far, here are the hints:

Week 1 hints:

Hint 1: http://i16.photobucket.c...2759/vk1_zpsb4c42d00.jpg
Hint 2: http://i16.photobucket.c...2759/vk2_zps7f127746.jpg
Hint 3: http://www.youtube.com/w...bedded&v=HsUbVpYsDe8

Week 2 hints:

Hint 1: https://pbs.twimg.com/me...HAx2siCQAEc2pw.jpg:large
Hint 2: https://pbs.twimg.com/me...HA1YbPCEAAhK7e.jpg:large
Hint 3: http://www.youtube.com/w...bedded&v=FvVeDloRAZY

And they dropped a bonus hint in as well: https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-...170145773_82532430_n.jpg

NOTE: My guess is the number font will be the same as the date that was posted on the Viktor video as I haven't seen the Vikings use that font in any of their other graphics.

That said, despite dozens of dozens of fan-made uniforms, this is the closest I feel the Vikings are going with their new threads. The only difference I think they'll go is going with a matte helmet instead of shiny/glossy finish (or maybe a matte/glossy dual-tone).

If I had my way, the only things I would change about the uniform in the picture I posted above is having an 'over-the-shoulder' stripe (think LSU or UCLA) and have the pant stripes be thicker and go all the way down.

When they come out they come out. All the hype they are going thru is simple to sell more jerseys.
This works. It is not too busy. It doesn't have 70 colors. White with purple trim at home and purple with white trim on the road. If they want to use a little yellow to highlight fine but teams like to gt the third color too heavy. Makes every thing look cheap or like some little league team. UserPostedImage


I hope they stick with white pants. Those purple ones were hideous.

stripes and numbers on the shoulders don't work.

It must be fun being a Vikings fan when all you've got to look forward to is a new uniform design.

The hints were a waste of time and dumb. Basically, they are just opinions of what others think. Of course the Vikings are going to like them. They have nothing else to be happy about. OH wait, they got Greg Jennings, my bad!

So basically it's just Nike's version of their old uniform/throwbacks. I never liked the current ones anyway. Haven't they only been out about 5 years?

6 years. And the picture I last posted was only a fan submission. Not official. The full uniform until the 25th will be pure speculation.

[laughing]

There's plenty of Viking fans who are not interested in uniform designs. I'm a uni-head, though (Uni-Watch blog is one of my daily page visits), so when it's any of MY teams getting new threads, I get jazzed up.

But certainly, feel free to throw pot shots.

I can say this.. at least they are ditching the quilt type design that looked like they didn't have enough fabric in the design room..

For me.. it will be interesting to see what the Nike impact overall will be. a year to develop so to speak.

Quilt design? You mean the piping/panels they had? If so, I've never seen/hear of them being compared to a quilt. Yeah, it was cool for 2 years when they first got them 6 years ago.. but was already waaaay late on that bandwagon and they got old fast. Should have stuck with a more classy look, IMO.

their current jerserys are great, new ones will probably suck

just looks as if they took some saturation out of the color. in other words, it is possible to make ugly, uglier.

I love that they are finally going to a darker, more old school tone of purple. Tons better than the bright almost blue.

I like the Bronco's uniforms and Ravens, those are decent. Years ago when Joey Galloway was playing, that 84 jersey was awesome looking, but all other seahawk jerseys looked like trash to me lol

I'm still trying to grasp the relevancy of this post in regards to mine.. but I'll take a stab in the dark.. You are saying you like the darker tones in jerseys better than the lighter/brighter ones?

they are hyping this way beyond measure. They must be afraid of laying another draft day egg like they have so many times before.

If there was any sort of truth behind your statement, it would sting rather than make me laugh.

Zero2Cool (3h) : Hi 😊😉
TheKanataThrilla (8h) : I guess I should have did a refresh when I walked away from the computer.
TheKanataThrilla (8h) : Peters is 25 with one year left on his contract at just over $3M
Zero2Cool (10h) : Mel Kiper sticks with Marcus Davenport to GB in 2nd mock
Zero2Cool (11h) : As for Marcus Peters, how old is he an what's his contract years left?
Zero2Cool (11h) : Packers got tired of Sitton's antics.
Zero2Cool (11h) : Sitton was released not because of play or salary, but personality. He will not be re-signed.
TheKanataThrilla (11h) : If we are planning on possibly cutting Cobb I can see the 2nd round pick. A second round pick for Peters is a pretty good deal.
Smokey (13h) : I'd offer Cobb + a 3rd round pick + a 6th round pick in 2019 for the CB Peters from KC.
TheKanataThrilla (13h) : I guess that is a highter round pick
TheKanataThrilla (13h) : Suggestion was a 2nd round pick. I would want a lower round pick. I think that is too much. A 3rd or 4th seems about right.
Smokey (13h) : Cobb and WHAT PICK ?
TheKanataThrilla (14h) : A suggestion I saw was a trade of Cobb and a Pick for Peters. I think that would be a great move.
Smokey (17h) : Sitton was drafted be GB in 2008, not a young man at this point, but still is a "bear" of a man.
Cheesey (21-Feb) : Sitton? Maybe if the price is right.
Cheesey (21-Feb) : I doubt the Packers would try to resign Sutton. But who knows? If the price is right?
Zero2Cool (20-Feb) : Bears declining option on Josh Sitton. He'll be Free Agent.
Zero2Cool (20-Feb) : Chiefs CB Marcus Peters trade rumors -- come to Packers!
Smokey (20-Feb) : Join us in Packershome and be part of the discussion today .
Zero2Cool (19-Feb) : Elizabeeth ... good bye
Zero2Cool (19-Feb) : Saturday, August 19, 2017
Zero2Cool (19-Feb) : That's dedicated spammng!
Nonstopdrivel (19-Feb) : For some reason, I had to flush my DNS cache to access this site from my laptop today.
Nonstopdrivel (19-Feb) : I prefer toads to frogs, Smokey, thank you very much.
Rockmolder (19-Feb) : My girlfriends says thanks, Rourke.
Smokey (19-Feb) : Nonstopdrivel that you most likely say to all the frogs you meet .
Nonstopdrivel (19-Feb) : Rockmolder's avatar is so fucking sexy.
gbguy20 (19-Feb) : never seen the interview before. tough to listen to. can't believe it was 7 years ago
gbguy20 (19-Feb) : just watched a nick Collins tribute on yourube. the end featured an interview with nick reflecting on his injury
buckeyepackfan (17-Feb) : Saints De'Vante Harris nothing but a POS!!!!! Look up his tweetes on Florida killings!!
Nonstopdrivel (17-Feb) : They're laying new gas line near my house. The trucks are all from a company in Madison.
Smokey (14-Feb) : 2018 Hall o Fame Game/Aug.2,2018/Ravens vs Bears
